Baseball Season: Tee Ball and Machine Pitch

Treyton and Alexa both signed up for baseball this year: Alexa in Tee ball, Treyton in Machine Pitch. 

They both really enjoyed it.

Treyton wished that his game was more like a "real game" - though they count outs and don't let the kids run the bases if they get out, they do let all the kids bat and there are only 2 - 3 innings (depending on time). And even though it isn't his idea of perfect, I seriously don't think he could have enjoyed it any more.

He loves the game of baseball. I love seeing his passion and commitment.

It's fun to watch him play, he's got serious skill! And I'm not just saying that because I'm his, mom. :) He's very dedicated to practicing, he's out there every day, usually with Tim working on his batting, catching and running.

Alexa also did really well. She is a great listener and very technical. If the coach said to do step 1 - 2 - 3, she did it EXACTLY how how he said it. She is a true joy to watch!

The helmet is a little large for her head - kinda cute to watch her run.

Alexa's coach was great, he really took the time to talk to Lexa and actually coach her. She, of course, was very friendly and liked to explain everything she did, and ask lots of question.

It was a great time to watch the kids be a part of a team and to meet some more families in our area. Treyton actually ended up being on the same team as two of the kids from across the street!
